ARE YOU
HAVING FUN?

23 - 26 OCTOBER 2014
THE VAZQUEZ BUILDING
BROOKLYN NY 11206
An exhibition of artists, curators, writers and art historians, whose practices span media and disciplines but whose work in each case - through conceptual, historical and organisational contexts - conceptually and materially explores the 'idea' and its mediation.
Are You Having Fun? is a study in the transmutable nature of meaning in relation to context and form. From explorations of form to communicate the idea, to explorations of the idea to communicate the form - language, culture and the transmission of meaning and value in relation to place and location are central to each.

LION EATING
POET IN THE
STONE DEN

11-27 FEBRUARY 2016
BELSIZE PARK
LONDON
‘Lion Eating Poet In The Stone Den’ explores the way in which we understand and perceive objects in relation to ideas.
The exhibition examines the systems that inform the way in which we interpret the significance of objects. Taking its title from the homophonic Chinese poem Shi Shì shí shi shi, the exhibition is underpinned by an examination of perception in relation to actuality. From the role that culture plays in framing our understanding of artworks and artefacts to the influence that technology bears on how value is assigned, the artists not only question how meaning is constructed, but also consider how it can shift over the course of an object’s existence.

THE MOVING IMAGE PROJECT

23-26 OCTOBER 2014
BROOKLYN FIREPROOF
BROOKLYN NY 11237
Glimpses of life caught through windows as you speed past in car, trains or planes. The transient state of time as we move around the world crossing time zones and countries. The daydream of staring, watching and waiting. This inaugural series of Sluice_screens began life as The Moving Image Project , a project that Sluice Associate Curator Charlie Levine began touring in early 2014. Levine originally commissioned/approached various artists to produce silent short films, or films that did not rely on sound, that touched the idea of movement and travel, of glimpses, the mundane and the world. Originally toured to Tokyo, Japan, Vadadora, India and Christchurch, New Zealand in 2014 it continues to grow as a programme of art works, the show reel being added to by artists Levine meets on her journeys.
